We purchased a home in Longboat Key and wanted to renovate the kitchen, master bedroom and master bedroom bath. Not knowing any tile, counter top and flooring vendors in the area we asked the previous owners of the house who they recommended. They said without a doubt to use Oracle Surfaces. We met with the owner Alan Lovera and he was extremely helpful in selecting all the different products for our renovations. They came in and did the work when scheduled and on time. But more importantly they did a tremendous job of installing the surface materials we had selected. The work was top notch, beautiful and expertly installed. I highly recommend Oracle Surfaces.

Everyone says that building a house is a very stressful experience. After working with Lily and the team at Oracle, I would have to disagree. To say Lily went above and beyond in helping us build our dream home would be an understatement. Prior to going to Oracle I probably went through 10,000 pictures on Houzz to find one bathroom I loved. I saw many things I liked, but nothing that was "it".
When I met with Lily for the first time, I gave her a very vague description of what I wanted. In all honesty, I didn't have a clue of what "it" was, I just knew I would recognize "it" when I saw "it". After listening to my requests, Lily told me to come back and she would have some ideas ready for me. When I came in for our meeting, Lily had 5 complete bathrooms laid out for me to view. One more breathtaking than the next. I couldn't believe it! I couldn't find one picture I loved online and she was able to nail the look I wanted for all 5 bathrooms on the first try! It was at that point that I knew our house was going to be the dream home we wanted it to be. From bathroom tile, counter top selections, back splashes to a gorgeous stone wall, there isn't one room in our house that doesn't have Lily's touch. Everyone that walks through the house comments on her attention to detail. It so noticeable, even curious people that just walked through the house when it was under construction have literally stopped my husband in the grocery store to tell him how unique and beautiful the tile work is.
Oracles talents are not only in their design work. Their customer service is like nothing I have ever experienced. On several occasions Lily met with me outside of store hours so we could meet deadlines that my husband and I caused us to be delayed on. She made changes on things that she didn't think were right (things that we would have never noticed but she has that much pride in her work.) Lily even took the time to advise us on items she doesn't even sell!!! She made sure we had all the right lighting, fixtures and mirrors to complete the look. Every question or concern I had was always addressed immediately. I know I wasn't Oracle's only client, but they always made me feel like I was. Thank you Lily and Alan for everything! You are undeniably the best!
"What can I say about two of our favorite people?
During construction of our new home, which my husband and I built with our architect, my husband remembered that he had worked with a tile company years ago and that a sharp young women, named Lilliana worked there. We were able to find her again quiet easily because she had now opened her own business with a new business partner. Upon meeting her the first time I knew she had design talent, wonderful products and the ability to meet all of my needs. If she didn't have the product I was looking for, she would find it and have for me within days. Once we had completed our tile selections Lilliana introduced us to her business partner, Alan, whose company installed all of our tile. He had assured my husband, who is a perfectionist, that our tile floors would be level, installed in a timely manner and be 100% satisfactory to the most critical customer. Alan was a man of his word! Alan's crew were all polite, clean, efficient and laid a floor that was completely level...ask my husband who came every day with a coin that he slid across the floor to make sure it didn't get hung up anywhere!During construction we dealt with many vendors, only a few were outstanding. Working with Oracle was a pleasure from the beginning to the end. Since we have completed our home we have recommended Oracle to many of our friends who have overwhelming enjoyed working with Lilliana and Alan."

"We are extremely pleased with the work of Oracle! We bought beautiful tile floors for our kitchen, family room, guest bathroom & shower, and replace the backsplash in our kitchen. The quality of both the materials and the workmanship was excellent. The installation was done on time, the crasfmanship was tops, and the price was reasonable. We want to thank Alan Lovera and his team for their excellent work and recommend them highly to anyone doing new home or remodeling work."

"We were more than thrilled at the great job you and your team did on our master bath project. The professionalism, the high quality of work, and the overal neatness of your team were exemplary. In addition, the project started and completed on time in spite of some speed bumps that were unforeseen, but you were able to overcome. From planning, marble selection, to installation, you expertise came throught and we have a beautiful result thanks to Oracle and Lovera. We would strongly recommend your company to anyone for tile and marble work!"

"After purchasing tile from Lilliana for a few years and utilizing Alan's installers for several jobs now, I can say with certainty this team has all the bases covered. My clients expect nothing short of perfection. These two come through every time, on time."
